Take time out for the vanua

SOCIAL Democratic Liberal Party leader Ro Teimumu Kepa is urging well educated iTaukei people to also dedicate their time to the development of their villages and vanua.

While addressing the Marama na Tui Ba, Adi Laite Koroirua, and Nailaga villagers on Thursday night, Ro Teimumu said it was vital for those living in villages to engage with their kin who had done well for themselves for the development of the village.

She said those who were well educated and those who lived in the village should work together for the development of the village and the vanua.

Ro Teimumu said a good example was former general secretary for the then Great Council of Chiefs and lawyer Asesela Sadole who hailed from Nailaga Village.

She said Mr Sadole's experience as a lawyer was valuable to the village, which was something that his fellow villagers should take advantage of.
